Caption: Aviation monument commemorating the British Fairey F-3 seaplane that made the first flight across the South Atlantic from Lisbon, Portugal to Brazil, in March-June of 1922. Two Portuguese naval officers (Coutinho and Cabral) flew a total of three F-3 seaplanes during the journey. Fuel limitations and mechanical problems required stops for repairs and fuel at remote Atlantic islands. Out of sight of land, they navigated using a sextant that had been specially designed for airplane use. Their first seaplane, the Lusitania, sank after a rough landing. They completed the journey in the Santa Cruz which replaced the Lusitania's replacement, the Portugal. Photographed in Lisbon, Portugal.
